Acyclovir Breastfeeding Warnings
In one woman, measurement of breast milk levels revealed her infant was exposed to 1% of the maternal dosage, or 0.73 mg/kg/day. No adverse effects were noted in this breast-feeding infant.
Acyclovir is excreted into and concentrated in human milk. Adverse effects in breast-feeding infants associated with exposure to acyclovir via breast milk have not been reported in the literature. Acyclovir is considered compatible with breast-feeding by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Moreover, acyclovir is used to treat viral infections in neonates.
